Jewel Weed for Poison Ivy, Oak, Sumac, Bug Bites, and Swimmers Itch


     Jewel Weed Topical Spray contains a synergistic blend of herbal plants to knock out the itch and swelling associated with inflammatory rashes from swimmer's itch, poison ivy, oak, and sumac.  
 Also, it is soothing for bee stings and bug bites.  

     Little children go into shock and scream bloody murder when they get stung by a yellow jacket!  As a vendor at many harvest festivals and farmers markets;  when the apples are for sale the yellow jackets are swarming.  Cool weather and fresh apples drives= the yellow jackets into a frenzy! The sun shining on the fruit, in a child's hand, appears to be a target for bees.  It doesn't take long before a child is stung.  For this reason, we leave a sample bottle of Jewel Weed Topical Spray at the first aid station, and on our table. Word spreads fast that there is an antidote for bee stings and mosquito bites at the fair.  Jewel Weed Topical Spray  has to be applied in many intervals, numerous times, before the child is comforted. I can hear it in their cry and see the expressions they make and know it is working. Sooner than later, in about 10 minutes or so, they lay their head down on the parent's shoulder, sobbing and sniffling.  The parents show their gratitude and look around our booth with curiosity and conversation. Whole plants for whole people, work the majority of the time. 

     Prevention is the best cure. Jewel Weed Topical Spray may be used as a preventative.  Spray on the exposed areas of skin before you approach nature, and spray again, 15 minutes after you have been exposed to skin allergen plants.  I tested this theory on myself, I am highly reactive to poison ivy. There is a bank I had to walk down to get to the bike path, which is covered with poison ivy. With sandals and shorts on I braved it.  To my surprised, it worked.  I have used this regimen for many years now. We make the Jewel Weed Topical Spray 2 oz. bottle,  a practical pocket size to take on  outdoor excursions.  It also neutralizes the oil on your dogs. I sprayed my dogs after our walks so I wouldn't get poison ivy after touching them. It works! 
          What if you get a case of poison ivy, oak, or sumac?  It's more involved. You have to spray Jewel Weed Topical about every 15 minutes to knock it out.  If it’s a bad flare up try making a paste with our Jewel Weed Soap and Topical Spray.  Spray the soap and mix with your finger until you have a paste consistency. Rub on the blisters and inflamed areas, let it dry and keep it on.  Or, shave the Jewel Weed Soap and mix the Topical Spray until it is the consistency of paste; and store in a glass jar. It is ready to use this way. 
Rub the paste over the blisters and let dry. Leave it on. It knocks the itch out and dries up the blisters. As soon as it starts to itch again, rinse off the soap and Jewel Weed Topical and apply fresh. You will be glad you did. Stay on top of this regimen.  
      Stay out of direct sun light while the skin is inflamed from allergen plants.  It takes longer to dry up if the blisters are exposed to sun light. The sun reactivates the condition.  I learned this the hard way. We were fishing up north for a week. I put the soap paste on, above my knees. The blisters disappeared. By the time we got off the boat, 6 hours later, the blisters were back. I reapplied the paste and they disappeared. Out in the sun, they reappeared. This went on the whole week. Finally, I figured it out. My skin suffered from exposing poison ivy to direct sunlight.  The skin above my knees, turned to saggy elephant skin. My skin recovered and tightened up in about 4 months.  
     What did I do for it? I applied Anna's Skin Repair Serum. Then again, this is another subject for a different blog. I will give you the link in case you have this issue though.

     Keep in mind, prevention is the best cure. Take Jewel Weed Topical Spray with you on your outings in the country.  Also, stay out of the sun, or keep your skin covered where the inflammation has caused blisters.
